Description

Black Mayors Meet in Philadelphia A majority of this nation’s 535 African American mayors will be in Philadelphia during April 28th through May 1st for the 30th Annual Meeting of the National Conference of Black Mayors, Inc. Democratic nominee Senator John Kerry as well as President George W. Bush, have been invited to speak to the convention. NCBM President, Mayor Harvey Johnson of Jackson, Mississippi, stated that “Our mayors are in the midst of many complex and serious problematic situations that face our cities – large and small: economic development; infrastructure needs; access to health care, energy and the environment; transportation policy as well as better housing and improved education. Our annual meetings and seminars give our member mayors the opportunity to work together seeking new solutions to problems that will safeguard our cities and towns and help our people.” “This prestigious conference will bring mayors, White House officials, members of Congress and other national dignitaries to Philadelphia to discuss concerns that face the nation’s cities,” said Mayor John F. Street, who is hosting the conference. “This type of gathering is important as it allows mayors to share ideas and strategies about how our cities are solving problems and how we are addressing issues ranging from the environment to technology and providing security as ‘first-responders.’ It also provides mayors the opportunity to discuss these issues with federal officials and experts from the corporate sector.”
